Coping with a Serious Data Loss from your Computer Hard DriveWritten by Darryl Peddle
Continued from page 1
Data recovery specialists are innovative problem solvers. Often, application of basic common sense, when no-one else is in any condition to apply it, is beginning of journey towards data recovery. The data recovery specialist draws on a wealth of experience, married to a "never say die" attitude, and a comprehensive tool kit of problem-solving procedures. Successful recovery outcomes hinge on a combination of innovative logistics, applied problem-solving, and "technology triage," process of stabilizing an affected system quickly, analyzing and treating its wounds, and preparing it for surgery. The triage process sets priorities, such as targeting which files are needed first or which are absolutely vital to functioning of business, and establishes whether files might be recovered in less structured formats (such as text-only), which may be desirable when time is crucial.
The art and science of professional data recovery can spell difference between a business' success or its failure. Before that level of intervention is required, though, users can take steps to ensure that probability of a data loss disaster is minimized.
Basic to any business technology plan is a regular fire-drill procedure. Back-up routines may be in place, staff may assigned to specific roles, hardware and software may be configured - but, if user isn't completely sure that everything works way it should, a data loss event is inevitable. Having adequate, tested, and current backups in place is critical. A hardware breakdown should not be compounded by human error - if malfunctioning drive is critical, task of dealing with it should go to a data recovery professional.
Just as data loss disasters are rooted in a combination of mechanical failure and human error, so, too, data recovery solution lies in a creative marriage of technological and human. The underlying philosophy of successful data recovery is that technology is something to be used by human beings, not something that uses us.
